When Season 2 of ‘Black Summer’ aired in 2021, it added a new, terrifying layer to the summertime atmosphere. In the June release of eight new episodes, the survivors of the zombie apocalypse continue to struggle for survival. Several storylines from ‘Black Summer’ Season 2 hang untold and hence, Black Summer Season 3 is much awaited. And, fans have wasted no time in demanding closure. Where will Karl Schaefer and John Hyams’ zombie apocalypse series go from here?
Are Plans in the Works for a Third Season of ‘Black Summer’?
Season 2 ended on a high note, so perhaps there will be a third season whenever Netflix makes their official renewal announcement. With so many questions unanswered at the conclusion of season 2, it’s reasonable to presume the creators of “Black Summer” are confident that Netflix will greenlight a third season.
Netflix doesn’t make renewal decisions for shows until at least a month following their first airing. Renewing ‘Black Summer’ for a third season is taking longer than normal. But, don’t expect it any soon. So, we’re still holding out hope that Black Summer season 3 will premiere sometime. While the second season of “Black Summer” debuted on June 17, 2021, there has been no word of a third season as of August 2023. We will update this page with the renewal status of the program as soon as we learn about it.
When will the third season of “Black Summer” premiere?
The premiere of the first season of ‘Black Summer’ was on April 11, 2019, on Netflix. Netflix has been mum on the show’s future for months despite the positive reception it garnered when it originally premiered on the site. Some viewers may have been disappointed to learn that the series will continue after the events of the last episode.
In November of 2019, Netflix green-lit a second season. That we had to wait two years for the following season was a major letdown. The spread of the Covivirus H19 outbreak also hampered production. After a lengthy wait, the second season of “Black Summer” finally debuted in June of 2021. If the timeline holds, Black Summer season 3 won’t premiere until 2024 at the earliest.
Black Summer Season 3’s Principal Cast
Black Summer’s poor reputation stems, in part, from the fact that its major players come and go so often. Despite this issue, the primary characters remained the same during the first two seasons.
Rose, played by Jaime King, has said that she had an immediate connection to the part. Zoe Marlett portrays Rose’s daughter Anna, a teen.
King praised Marlett’s portrayal of Anna in an interview. Actor Justin Chu Cary portrays Julius James, alias “Spears,” a reformed felon who now poses as a military figure.
Christine Lee plays Ooh “Sun” Kyungsun’s character who gives a memorable performance. Sun is Korean and so unable to speak English. To expect these crucial series regulars to return for Black Summer Season 3 is only reasonable.
Recap of Season 1 and 2
Season 1 introduces Rose (Jaime King) and Anna (Zoe Marlett), Rose’s daughter. The breakout leads to their separation. As a last resort, Rose and other random people decide to go to a stadium in the hopes of being rescued by the military. On their trek to safety, they come across other survivors and face several threats, including a ruthless gang and a zombie attack on a bus.
Season 2 finds Rose and her group of allies fighting to stay alive in a zombie-infested world. They check into a hotel and learn that other survivors, with their own agendas, are also there. The tension between the two groups is high, and it might lead to violence. People await Black Summer season 3
What to expect from Season 3?
To start, the show was not renewed for a second season. The precise events of Black Summer season 3 are similarly unpredictable and unguaranteed. However, if we recall the events of season 2, we see that the survivors were working toward getting to the airfield. They want to depart the area aboard the mysterious plane that has been dropping off supplies. Sun was the only one of the survivors who made it onto the plane. If past seasons provide any indication, Season 3 should reveal the destination of the rescue plane and whether or not Sun survives the journey.
The third season of “Black Summer” will be made available to the public at some time in the future. However, Netflix has been mum on the fate of the program for quite some time. COVID-19 epidemic issues impeded the creation of the program as well. All of this points to a delay of the Black Summer Season 3 launch of “Black Summer” until sometime in late or early 2024.
